    If you have the single vanos m52 you can use either the USA 3.0 litre or 3.2 litre cams for good gains.

    Schrick are the best aftermarket cams, then there are Dbilas who also make decent m52 cams.

    Some others will try to sell you regrinds which I wouldn't use

    There's also Cat Cams. They are around £700 though..
    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    They must be the USA cams from the S52b3.2, not the Euro M3.

    Cat cams are also good

    This is because the US M3 engines are basically tuned up M50/M52 engines...the euro M3 is a completely different engine
